Strongly suggest reading through the forums, the answers lie within....
Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

Ultimately it will be your decision, I'm not in the UK and not versed in UK law..barely versed in US law either..the more you read and learn the better armed you will be tho..

Hi, I'm in the UK too & would advise ignoring them. You'll most likely get another letter in a few weeks but they will go away eventually. Just keep the documents for your reference.

First thing is to remove the image/images as I assume that you had no intention of using images that were copyright protected..?
Next thing is up to you but personally I have chosen not to ignore the letter. There are many ways to reply and I can't say which works best as I am right in this process myself.
